  • Cleaned and dusted the furniture and plants
  • Re-arranged furniture to create a new, refreshed aesthetic
  • Removed scuff marks from the paint and doors
  • Repaired some of the vinyl baseboards in the rooms
  • [Attempted to] clean the white erase board in the Group Room
  • Made the Room “In Use” sliders usable (“Vacant” on one side, “In Use” on the other)
  • Moved telehealth equipment to the Storage Closet to create a tidier ambiance
  • Cleaned some of the overhead lights
  • Cleaned the glass on the one-way mirrors
  • Vacuumed the rooms
  • Ate pizza and had an all-around good time!

The team hopes that the refreshed aesthetic is enjoyable to all in CHP and, most importantly, the patients!
